Emergency COVID-19 Rental Assitance

Emergency COVID-19 Rental Assistance

Renters and landlords can apply for money from the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Emergency Rental Assistance program. Get help with rent, utility bills and even moving costs.

If you’re having trouble making rent payments, you’re not alone.

The COVID-19 pandemic has made it difficult for renters and landlords to cover housing costs. The CDC eviction moratorium ended on July 31, so renters are worried about catching up on past-due rent and facing eviction.

The U.S. Department of the Treasury has an Emergency Rental Assistance program. The funds are being distributed by state and local organizations to their communities. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has a tool to find a program in your community.

You don’t have to be behind on rent to get assistance. Some programs offer help with future rent. Local programs may also offer help with utility bills and moving costs.
